BWW Review: Gentlemen Prefer Booty in Kirsten Childs' BELLA: AN AMERICAN TALL TALE
by Michael Dale - Jun 24, 2017

The recent Signature Theatre revival of Suzan Lori-Parks' VENUS, based on the true story of Saartjie Baartman, depicted a 19th Century African woman who was subjected to exploitation because of white people's fascination with her prominent posterior.  But the mood is considerably lighter over at Playwrights Horizons these days, where the title character of Kirsten Childs' joyfully old-fashioned, but sneakily subversive new musical, BELLA: AN AMERICAN TALL TALE, is a 19th Century African-American woman who celebrates the attention her queenly derriere receives and uses it as a source of empowerment.

BWW Review: THE SECRET DIARY OF ADRIAN MOLE AGED 13¾ - THE MUSICAL
by Marianka Swain - Jul 27, 2017

Britain's most beloved diarist (give or take a Bridget Jones) comes to London in chamber musical form in a new adaptation created with the late Sue Townsend's blessing.

The Boy from Tomorrow Psychic Novels
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2017

Daniel's clairvoyant episodes since childhood defy reason. Nonetheless, he asserts we all possess this ability to various degrees. And tweens and teens may be most receptive. Over the years, ordinary people have shared their stories of foresight with Daniel: foretelling of another's illness, finding another's lost articles, preventing another's demise. Premised on his psychic experiences, Daniel's novels offer a humorous look how dreams and deja vu foretell of personal events in one's future. His thought-provoking vignettes re-examine conventional wisdom from a fresh perspective. In Volume I: Premonitions, psychic silliness rules Middle School. Danny must prove he knew his Dream Girl, Patti, before they met! But, Patti has her own plan manipulating her class pets to carry out her hidden agenda. Danny must fight to keep Patti honest armed only with a weapon he does not understand: Premonitions! Can a peculiar good luck charm and the mysterious Gemini Promise prove he is indeed Patti's "Boy From Tomorrow"? Imagine the impossibilities! Download your free copy of Volume I: "Premonitions" at my website: www.danielormont.com (more...)
